Forum: feature_films Subject: Question for Quigs

I recall that your father appeared in the movie "Lost, Lonely and Vicious" and was wondering; the producer of that film also produced another one set in the "deep south" by the name of "Louisiana Hussy." Both were "Bon Aire" productions, and both were released in 1959.

I know that "LL&V" was filmed in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, whereas "LH" was filmed closer to New Orleans, but do you know if your father might have appeared in that movie as well?

Both are interesting and unusual low-budget "soap opera" type drama films, pretty well-made considering their tiny budgets.

Just curious if you knew anything more about these films. Personally, I'd be thrilled to have made or worked in two minor features like these. Incidentally, both films are available on the Archive, thanks to the uploaders.

Thanks!

"Cos", nice to hear from you!!!!!!!!!!!! Nope, that was dad's only film. The reason being is that being the General Manager of a hotel in the 1950's meant baically you oversaw everything including slightly daffy actors to slightly confuse crew members. My dad was the hotel and saw to their every comfort and need. Because of this, the director made a point of thanking the hotel's staff by putting in my dad as reporter(the original guy was fired the first week of production) and the day bartender Larry ( as a buddy to the clonesgue version of James Dean).

Thanks for the reply. I really enjoy these two films, despite the bad reviews they got. I'll be watching "Lost, Lonely and Vicious" tonight and will again watch for your father.

Coffee shops don't seem to exist anymore. Now there's just Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts. Not the same at all, is it? Gone the way of the neighborhood corner market and general store.
